My Bio Whisked away from the home I knew and friends and school and abruptly transplanted into a place unknown to me, I was forced to open my young mind. I was ten years old and left to find friends where there were none. None but a tangle of thorny raspberry bushes, a twig of a sorry creek, and an open mind for the moment. It was there that I found comraderie; a spider, a minnow, a very willing crawdad and the never-ending, babbling conversation of my best friend, that skinny creek.

Today, I still follow the winding of whatever creek is nearby. It is a friendship that never ends. There is always something to do and lately it has been photographing the reflections of the waters, the trees that follow along the bank, the clouds and storms above and whatever richness I can find there. And there is an abundance of richness indeed!

For over 40 years, I have delighted in the life of the creek. From the green mosses and smooth stones to the hike alongside and to all that life holds within it.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
This is a tough decision - I have so many projects in mind! I am thinking of a children's book perhaps that might charge inspiration to create... Or should it be for everyone?
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Louis L'amour can describe the Western Frontier like no other... Oh how I love his works!

And this artist can cast light to bring deep shadows, rich and bright colors, rainbows after a rain, piercing light bouncing and jumping from fresh fallen snow and ice just laid out, crispness and wonder, until it sets low. Know the Sun for only it is all knowing of beauty and light and life. Sunlight is an artist to know.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
As soon as I write it, I will let you know...
